Fit Steps Dance

Weekly ‘Fit Steps’ Dance Sessions every Monday evening from 7pm – 8pm at Crownway Community Centre. Classes cost £3.50 per week. Fitness that is ‘Strictly’ fun!

For more information, visit: or contact FitSteps instructor Louise on 07936 370926.

FitSteps® came to life in 2013 as the result of a collaboration between two of the UK’s most famous ballroom dancers and Britain’s most successful swimmer!

During the long, arduous dance training sessions that are an integral part of Britain’s most successful entertainment show, ‘Strictly Come Dancing’, Natalie Lowe, Mark Foster and Ian Waite had a great idea.

They decided to mix the graceful steps of Ballroom and the up tempo steps of the Latin dances together to create a really fun, energetic and effective way to stay fit and keep trim that would appeal to everyone, even if they couldn’t dance. They created FitSteps® – the unique dance fitness programme that is ‘so much fun you don’t even realise you’re getting fit!’
